They ended up at The Mad Potter, a local pottery store in Houston, Texas. Handmade gifts come more from the heart and truly hold a special meaning for mothers all over the world. Bill decided that a creation by Will would become the ultimate mother’s day surprise. At the pottery store, they chose a cute cupcake platter on which they would serve their sweet pastries. After painting the platter and most of his face and hair, Will was assisted in putting his hand prints on the dish. They also chose a travel mug to paint, as Jennifer is a coffee fanatic. This piece was also finished with the bright purple addition of little Will’s hand print. These personalized gifts were not only items that she could use, but lasting reminders of Jennifer’s first mother’s day. Bill and his son had a fun filled day and made a special memory together all while making a truly thoughtful present for Jennifer.

The Highest Rated Food Processors From Braun

Braun has been known as a quality maker of kitchen appliances for a very long time. So when I needed a new food processor, I started doing my research to see which brand and model I should buy. I’ve given up shopping at big box stores with their cheap products and even cheaper customer service these days. I hate their limited products and their inability to get the latest merchandise before online stores. So I’ve resorted to Amazon.com where I buy all my household appliances now. It was here that I started doing my research on the highest rated food processors made by Braun.

I first looked at the K600 food processor from Braun. I cook for a big family plus we entertain regularly. So I needed a food processor that could do several things other than just chop an onion or two. I needed a food processor that could chop a bag of onions at one time, mix dough for homemade bread and mix up a gallon of salsa!

I liked what I saw with the K600. It was a high rated pick on several consumer reports that I read. It seemed powerful enough to handle my heaviest cutting chores. The only thing I didn’t like was that it is a 220v powered food processor. Since I didn’t want to take this thing out to my husbands 220v plug for his welder, I kept looking for a powerful Braun food processor that ran off of 110 volts.

The one I finally decided on was the K650. It does everything I want and need and it runs on 110 household current. It has a dual overload protection so I know I won’t burn the thing up or get myself electrocuted. It has multiple preset buttons that will slice, chop, mix or puree. I like the fact that it also has all dish washer safe components. No more hand washing this piece or that piece. Also, the blades are stainless steel. Not coated still that will rust on you in the future. All in all, this unit is one of the highest rated food processors I found on Amazon.

Mothers Day Poem

To That Special Mom

Mother’s Day is a day that is celebrated in many different countries. The ancient Romans also revered their mothers on the day of Juno, the harvest goddess. In the United States, in 1914, a very special woman by the name of Anna Jarvis spearheaded the movement to have a date set aside to revere all moms in this country. Because of her, Mothers Day occurs on every second Sunday in May.

Every year, almost everyone scrambles to find the perfect Mother’s Day card with the perfect sentiment or the perfect mother’s day poem.  Many rely on Hallmark or other card companies to do our work for them, while others are more daring and take months or weeks to write that perfect poem for mom.

The high tech sons and daughters choose to let their fingers do the walking over their keyboards; seeking websites that promise “the perfect card.” There are also those individuals that have books bound with personal family photos of themselves, children, family pets and events that have occurred throughout the years.

The do it yourself card maker will patronize either a small independent scrapbooking store or a big box crafting emporium. These shops make card kits that can be put together with some scissors, glue, colorful pens and miscellaneous embellishments. However the makers of these cards are still on their own to find a suitable poem or saying for their one of a kind mom.

Mothers Day Poems

Mothers Day Poems

The tradition of honoring Mothers goes back to the Greeks and their celebrations of Rhea the mother of all their deities. The second Sunday in May was proclaimed as the official day to honor all mothers in the United States by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. With Mothers Day Cards and gifts we try to tell our Mothers what they mean to us.

Many have chosen the tradition of writing poems to celebrate the women who nurtured us. Words are used to express deep feelings and from the small child to the professional writer, great effort is put forth to honor in words the women we treasure. With a Mothers Day poem we endeavor to tell Mother how much we love her.

Many mothers can open a box that holds handwritten cards decorated with paper lace and hearts, mis-spelled words and crayon drawings. These precious mementos of their childs first efforts to say Happy Mothers Day, are treasures they keep for a lifetime.

Mothers Day cards may have become a big business, but to the woman who receives them the very fact she received it is worth more than a diamond ring. A poem filled with words that say her child feels loved and secure is more often than not the only time she will hear how much her sacrifices have meant. That is why each May we all sit down to write or search out already written poems to give she who deserves thanks.
